Dell EqualLogic PS6000 Series Arrays: Exceptional ease of use


The PS6500E is an intelligent storage array that provides rapid installation, simple management, and seamless expansion. All PS Series storage arrays include SAN configuration features and capabilities that sense network topology, automatically build RAID sets, and conduct system health checks to help ensure that all components are fully functional. A PS6500E can often be configured and serving storage in less than 1 hour.


The EqualLogic PS Series’ virtualized, modular architecture enables IT managers to purchase only the storage that is needed when it is needed – helping to prevent both under utilization and over-provisioning. Using patented data movement technology, all PS Series arrays can work together to automatically manage data, load balance across system resources and expand to meet growing needs.

All PS Series arrays are designed to exceed the rugged requirements of the data center. The PS6500E is fault tolerant with fully redundant and hot swappable components – standard dual-controllers, triple fan trays, triple redundant power supplies and disk drives with hot spares. Self tuning write-back caches are battery-backed and mirrored across controllers for ultimate protection without compromising performance.
